An Automatic Guidance System for a Narrow Stope Mucking Machine.
Proc 5th Canadian Symp on Mining Automation Nat Advisory Comm on Mining Auto Pp 234-244 :234-244
A prototype mucking machine designed to operate in narrow vein stopes was developed. The machine, called a compact loader-trammer, or minimucker, was designed to replace slusher muckers in narrow- vein underground mines. The design and functions of the minimucker and its computer-based, remote-control system are reviewed, and a guidance system that uses ultrasonic ranging sensors is described.
